Autumn Army&You – teen takeover

The latest edition of Army&You focuses on what Army life is really like for teens and young people.

Our feature explores first-hand experiences of youngsters who have a parent in the Armed Forces and showcases lots of organisations that offer fantastic support and brilliant projects that you can get involved with.

We’ve got some great CV tips to help them land that first job as well as pointers to get them clued up on cash.

You can also read about taking your job overseas while being part of a military family – we share some success stories as well as the problems and pitfalls.

There’s a wellbeing focus with an honest account of mental health struggles from an Army spouse, and some of you who run businesses in the health and fitness industry tell your stories about surviving through lockdown.

What with our great giveaways, including the chance to win a canal cruise for 10 people, brilliant blogs and a postcard from Münster, there’s plenty to get stuck into over a cuppa! Read it online here.



    Take a look at the ‘Who’s looking after your house?’ article on page 36 of Army & You, for more details about how Service Family Accommodation will be managed under the new Future Defence Infrastructure Services (FDIS) contracts which start in spring 2022.
